Hi, all! We are glad to be back after taking two weeks off of blogging. I am having a hard time finding things to write about, since we are still largely unable to go anywhere or do much. I am planning to resume a regular blogging schedule next week.

Today I want to resume farmhouse Friday by sharing some super cute home decor items at Tractor Supply. If you have never checked out their home decor section, I highly recommend you do so!

Free summer printables

Hi, all! We took a few weeks off because we were struggling to produce new content due to the pandemic. We decided to take a break and that breather was just what we needed.

If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know I love to make free printables for each season. I realized this week that I have not created any summer printables for you guys. I created three simple prints with quotes about summer. Feel free to download and enjoy for your personal use only. These are not to be used commercially. For best results, print no larger than 8×10.

You all know how much I love quotes!!
Very, very true!!
It surely is!!

To download, just right click on the printable and save it to your device.

Enjoy!!!

Happy Independence Day!

Happy birthday America!

Emorie: Now entering the back nine

Photo credit: 365 Photo

Nine years ago today, our oldest daughter Emorie blew into the world. We were told only one year earlier we’d never have children without fertility intervention. We said we’d go home and think about it. Two months later, we found out she was on the way. She was born three weeks early and was the tiniest, pinkest infant Id ever seen in my life. We were instantly in love.

Her personality grew right along with her and she gained a fan club everywhere we went.

She was snuggly, sweet and had her daddy wrapped around her finger. Still does, in fact.

Even as a toddler, she was known for her sunny personality and soft spot for others.

She is smart, talented, kind hearted and loving. She is empathetic toward others and wants to be an oncology nurse someday.

She doesn’t like to admit it, but she loves her little sister and tries to take care of her.

She is happiest when she is dancing and she works hard each day to become better at her dancing.

She is growing up so fast and will be a fourth grader this fall. We have realized we only have nine more years left before she goes to college. Time truly does fly when you’re having fun.

Happy birthday, Sunshine. You are loved beyond measure.

Always Eat After Seven P.M.: One Month Later

This post is brought to you by our sponsor, “Always Eat After 7 PM”. The opinions expressed below are my own.

Hi, all! I am now rounding out my fourth week of Always Eat After 7 PM: The Revolutionary Rule-Breaking Diet That Lets You Enjoy Huge Dinners, Desserts, and Indulgent Snacks—While Burning Fat Overnight by Joel Marion . It’s been a great month and I’ve enjoyed many tasty meals, and I’ve felt great. I’ve even lost about five more pounds. Prior to beginning Always Eat After Seven P.M., I was counting macronutrients. I still continued to do this, but I changed up what I was eating a bit and most importantly, WHEN I was eating. I’ve always been one to eat a large breakfast and a sparse dinner, since I’ve always believed you weren’t supposed to eat a large meal late in the evening. I was skeptical at first, but I found eating a larger, carbohydrate based meal at 7P.M. or a little later helped me to sleep better and have more energy the next day. I also didn’t wake up starving.

I plan to continue counting macronutrients and following the guidelines in Always Eat After 7 P.M. The recipes in the book are easy to make and are delicious, and the amount of energy I have now is wonderful.

The book was easy to read and it challenged a lot of what I’ve believed about nutrition over the years. Joel Marion, the author, uses several scientific studies to support his claims. For instance, “A research paper published in Sports Medicine in 2014 showed that people who eat the majority of their carbs at dinner actually sleep better. Carb-induced, quality sleep decreases cortisol (a fat-storing hormone) and ramps up the production of your sleep hormones, serotonin and melatonin. Restorative sleep increases fat-burning hormones—the main one being growth hormone—overnight.”

Joel Marion’s Always Eat After 7PM program makes dieting easy and eliminates 90% of reasons for resistance.  The most challenging times to curb hunger are just before bed and in the morning. By following the Always Eat After 7PM program, you have the most willpower to stay on the diet because you are eating during the hours when you are most hungry. This also puts you into both intermittent fasting increasing testosterone and your metabolism, while putting you into ketosis.   The Always Eat After 7 PM plan consists of: The 14-day Acceleration Phase to kick-start the program and see rapid results, The Main Phase where you’ll learn exactly which foods to eat when in order to achieve your weight-loss goals, The Lifestyle Phase to keep the weight off for good.

If you want to have your knowledge of nutrition challenged and tested, you should check out Always Eat After 7 PM: The Revolutionary Rule-Breaking Diet That Lets You Enjoy Huge Dinners, Desserts, and Indulgent Snacks—While Burning Fat Overnight by Joel Marion  You will find a diet plan that is not overly restrictive, that allows you to continue to eat some of your favorite foods and helps you to feel better and have more energy. It sounds too good to be true but it isn’t. Learn more about the book and how to purchase it here.
